Have you ever purchased a bottle of wine based solely on the label? I couldn't resist the above. It was on sale, but still a wee bit more than I usually pay. Naturally, the equestrian-themed labels tend to catch my eye. In this case it was both the image of the horses and the name of the winery: 14 Hands. Hands are, of course, the method of measuring horses. So I suppose the label could be read in a variety of ways: the height of a horse, the number of hands or people involved in making the wine, etc. But the name of the red wine itself clinched the purchase. "Hot to Trot."
I generally purchase Northwest white wines at under $10 per bottle. I have to confess that, although I live in the pinot noir capital of the world (or so we like to think), I just can't get past the tannins in red wine. Nor do I care for the puckery white wines. I aim for the rieslings and Muller-Thurgau whites.
Although -- I am a fan of Ste. Chapelle Winery's "soft" wines. Their Soft Red is one of my favorites.
I am in no fashion a wine connoisseur, but I find Hot to Trot to be light in the tannins and a mellow blend. Not bad for a purchase based solely on the label!
